We are often quoted as being “obsessed” about quality— our fleet of satisfied customers will agree.

Our interior department is especially proud to employ master craftsmen of their kind. THE PROCESS At Oxford Aviation, we take pride in the production, installation and repair of custom aircraft cabinetry and furniture. Our custom cabinet makers have a creative nature with an extremely good eye for detail, which enables them to design and produce finished projects of beauty and fine detail using high quality veneers and hardwoods. Our cabinet makers are able to create projects from existing cabinetry or from custom designs. They can also create new pieces to suit the needs and desires of individual customers. To make you familiar with our cabinet making process and the elusive craftsmanship involved, here are some insights: EDGE JOINING Edge joinery relies mostly on adhesive strength, although there are exceptions. Some edge joints do have reinforcing, like biscuits, dowels, or even a tongue and groove. These types of reinforcement are used as much for alignment as for strength. What edge joinery depends on is two good mating edges cut straight and true and bonded together with a good adhesive.
